2) 422 Comp Cam
3) Ported/polished heads
4) Knife-edged intake
5) BBK 66mm throttle

1) LP Dana 44 out an early bronco
2) 4.88 gearing
3) Detriot locker rear, open or maybe LSD upfront.
4) SOA rear
5) Re-drill bolt pattern for rear axle shafts and drums

Dana 44 and 33"s tires you thinking? For one, i like my gearing. The overlap cam and the low gearing complement eachother very well, i would like to be low as much as i can stand . The main thing im going for with the bigger knuckles is the bigger spindles and brakes and the added stability to keep me tracking straight!

I haven’t gotten to the front yet due to a lack of decision. I really want to put another truetrac up front, but apparently I can’t get one? Someone on here has one... unclemeat?

I think if settle with a selectable locker like an ARB I would be happier. I like the idea of being able to go from open to locked’ in the front. They're just so expensive haha.

I figured i'd update this a little bit.

I got my front gears in finally, its GREAT having 4wheel drive (for the first time in MONTHS.) I had to go open, originally i had an aussie locker lined up which was sent to me for testing (from offroadlockers.com.) Unfortunaltly, their model they were trying to use for the 91-94 explorers was too large for the carrier. So im open for now!

Gotta love some mud mogals. You would think thats some kind of dirt-bike track, in actuality, thats how the clay naturally erodes around us.
